When the concept of Internet was new, web-development was for the most part a purely functional data centric endeavor. User experience wasn’t something that was considered in the early days, and there were not yet the tools in place to provide the level of aesthetic variety one now experiences.
Today front end development plays a much larger role in web and application development. The way a user interacts with data has become a priority for developers.
What is Front End Development?
The talented web development team at Leo TechnoSoft possesses expertise in everything that Front End Development requires.
Front End Development trends:
1. Responsive web design:
2. Representational State Transfer (REST):
Representational State Transfer (REST) is a software architecture style that consists of guidelines and best practices for creating scalable web services.
Today, in the world of web development, mobile version of a website are becoming prioritized among enterprises, with regards to Web development architecture. When organizations develop Web apps and Web services, they align this with their mobile strategy.
Today Web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are the central point of Web apps and Mobile apps. Hence, developers are building RESTful services on server-side and front-end apps for both Mobile and web on the basis of these services.
3. Single Page Applications (SPA):
Web front-end development has moved to client-side with desktop like UIs on the browser. Here, developers are rendering the UI on the client-side instead of server-side rendering.
Future of Front End Development:
Previously, web development had limited scope for customization and web-templates used could not be changed. Hence, web-developers could not always cater to all demands of clients.
However, today with customization possible, developers can capture the vision of a client and this vision often goes beyond basic development. This has allowed for new functionality problems to arise. To many moving parts in combination with variations in browser and platform specifications can lead to web pages and applications no loading properly on different devices and platforms. Simplicity is often the key. The features on a website have to provide value. Developers and designers should build a flexible platform that is easily navigable; make it responsive, fast, informative, and helpful.
2. Going beyond Flash:
Going beyond conception, responsive design has evolved a lot and has come a long way. Interactive features that were previously available due to Flash, turned out to be unreliable and burdensome, and ultimately lead to it not supported supported on all devices. Given the need to be consistent across all platforms and browsers, technology solutions had to become increasingly sophisticated, striving to meet the demands.
The necessity to integrate web design and development with marketing will only grow in the future. The job of the front-end developer will be to make the website interactive and fun to watch. With website having a layout that is visually appealing, it can motivate the visitor into becoming a customer. The role previously played by Flash on the internet, has been replaced by video and interactive applications.
Important tools for Front End Development:
HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet that is used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. HTML 5 is the fifth version of this language. HTML5 is already supported in the latest web browsers on computers and tablets.
According to Strategy Analytics, there were one billion HTML5-capable phones sold in 2013, a huge increase from the 336 million units sold in 2011. This increase means that it is impossible to ignore the importance of HTML5 when considering your mobile site. Indeed, in some B2C and retail ecommerce client implementations Byte9 are seeing 40% of visitors accessing sites on mobile devices. This is a beginning.
HTML5 is cost-effective. It ensures Multi-Platform Development, good page ranking, consistency across multiple browsers, better mobile access to Business Intelligence and lastly, better user experience. HTML5 also supports Geolocation, extension of video to a wide range of platforms and off-line browsing.
Offering all the benefits of HTML5, CSS3 is the fourth version of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). CSS is a style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language. It provides the aesthetic framework that transforms raw data into content that the user can relate with.
In software development, AngularJS is an open-source web application framework maintained by Google and by a community of individual developers and corporations to address many of the challenges encountered in developing single-page applications. AngularJS enables you to create software more quickly and with less effort. It improves the testability of your software and allows greater collaboration.
At Leo TechnoSoft, we offer Java Development services and Java Support services, along with HTML5 and CSS3. Contact us for more information about our services.
With the desire to keep all documents handy and reduce paperwork to the minimum, DMS is a foolproof solution that any organization would desire.
The key purpose of DMS system is to ensure easy and systematic organization and subtle classification via digital documentation. Digital documentation results in organizational efficiency.
The risks that can arise due to lack of proper document management include data leaks, trade secrets theft and no record of the people who have viewed the documents.
DMS helps the users to get rid of big files and folders and vast shelves where a person first needs to locate a file-folder and then the document for which he was looking for. Paper documents can be imaged (scanned) and stored electronically in the digital drives. With remote access to documents possible due to gadgets like tablets and smartphones, DMS users have all documents at their fingertips.
Document Management Systems can classify all documents (digital or otherwise) in the form of faxes, computer files, collaborative work spaces, e-mails, photos, video and audio. DMS users can locate any document in the digital drive via digital documents have been classified category-wise and kept in category-based digital folders.
Document Management spells convenience
With the way laptops are replacing desktops and tablets are replacing laptops, it is fair to say that compact gadgets symbolize convenience. Hence, the day is not far when compact digital documents would completely replace paper documents as digital documents are easy to store and access.
One needs to browse through files and folders to find relevant paper documents while digital documents can be searched just by entering the name of the document in a search bar or by checking the category-based folder on a computer.
Trends in DMS:
1. Document management through the cloud:
Cloud computing brings advantages even to DMS. It provides an easily accessible resource and repository for both documents and related software. Cloud Computing is also helpful in being cost effective. It provides ease of access and reduced maintenance efforts. However, given the potential security risks that can arise due to cloud computing, cloud security is currently among the most researched areas in the IT world. Any progress or improvement in this area would allow for more organizations, whatever their business, to move all their complete DMS to the cloud.
2.Mobile device integration:
Today, everything is going mobile and DMS is no exception. In fact, one of the key reasons the IT World embraced DMS was remote access to documents. With mobile devices being used more and more for business communication, there has been a huge surge in the amount of documents stored, transferred and even edited through them.
3. Focus on security:
Security is a must for every online and offline activity in the cyber world. Volumes of documents processed are increasing by the day. The channels through which these are propagated are becoming increasingly varied. Hence, it is obvious that ensuring their security would soon become a major concern for most organizations.
Future of DMS:
According to a Forbes article, nearly two thirds of IT Executives are investing in document management initiatives. This proves that IT professionals are very fond of document management’s current and future state.
In the near future, computers and gadgets will continue to increase in storage capabilities while retaining a convenient size. However, the constant emergence of new digital platforms and file types means that document management beyond personal computers and gadgets is essential for any business of a decent size.
In 2014, 68% of organizations had five or more storage repositories, with many IT leaders citing an inability to easily find content and poor mobility as big challenges.
Document Management Systems share a deep connection with the existing publishing standards and regulations. Therefore, one can expect DMS systems to get more and more customised in the near future. They are expected to cater, not just according to the needs of the organizations using them, but also to the specific areas in which they are being used.
Sharepoint and Alfresco synonymous with DMS:
Following are the key features of Sharepoint that put it among top choices for DMS:
1. Content types and meta-data:
Every organisation has different types of content that are often used in different ways by different teams. SharePoint deals with this by using Content types and assigning them to all items, ranging from documents, pages, list items and so on. A content type consists of metadata properties, information policies, and a document template. Proper utilization of these properties makes a document searchable on Google.
2. Integration with MS Office:
Sharepoint is compatible with Microsoft Office. Metadata can be entered directly in an Office document using the Document Information Panel. Watermarks can also be added automatically.
3. Records management:
With this feature, any organisation can easily create an online archive of permanent digital records. Documents can be archived manually or automatically based on retention policies. For each document type a different library can be created in the archive. Document creator will also have the choice giving a different retention schedule to library. Routing rules ensure that each document sent to the archive, will get into the right library. Mails can also be archived.
4. Co-authoring document:
Using co-authoring features of Sharepoint, multiple people can work on the same document at the same time without any hassle.
Although Sharepoint is heavily used for DMS, Alfresco is not lagging behind and the attractive features of Alfresco regarding DMS are as follows:
